Shawn O'Donnell Music on SoundBetter

With hundreds of hours of experience in the studio laying down vocals on many songs spanning a variety of genres, I'm here to provide you with the emotive vocal and top line melodies you need to complete your song.

Meet Shawn O’Donnell, a singer-songwriter based in West Chester, PA. with a unique sound that infuses his alt-rock roots with melodic pop. Shawn spent the beginning of his solo music journey making YouTube Cover Videos that span a variety of vocal and instrumental styles amassing over 100,000 views. After years of honing in on the craft of songwriting and producing he decided to release his first original song ‘Quicksand’ in June 2020. Growing up playing in numerous punk bands his goal has been to take the sensual vibe of R&B/pop music and combine it with the community and raw energy that comes from a live rock show.

"The first thing you capture at that first listen to the song is Shawn’s nearly perfect and natural voice. And what’s more, is that Shawn has that songwriter’s mentality that knows exactly what not only compliments his voice musically but what music can surround that vocal prowess to become an all-encompassing self-made style that lets the listener in and welcomes them to the next experience of their life." - Jammerzine

"Shawn is a young singer with loads of potential." - ANR Factory

    Shawn did a great job working on duet vocals for a song I needed. Vocally he is talented, will read all instructions you send him, and work with you until you are happy with the finished product. Thank you for being easy to communicate and work with!

    Shawn is a talented singer and songwriter and I had the privilege to record some cello tracks for one of his awesome original songs. It was a pleasure to work with him and I look forward to doing so again!

    Shawn was a huge help to our company. We had a song that needed the proper session musician and luckily a mutual friend referred us. Within two days we had the vocals we had asked for and then some! Already in discussion to hire him for more projects in the future.

    I recently played some bass for Shawn and he was a blast to collaborate with. Chill guy, and excellent producer. If he wants you to work with him you absolutely should.

    Shawn Is an excellent musician and producer, helped me record my first single was patient with me and determined to get the best out of the song we possibly could. I personally know not very much about production and he was very educational and helpful in showing me how everything works and how to make the song the best it can be. Highly recommend working with him and checking out his music!

    I've had the privilege of working with Shawn on numerous occasions, recording covers, video auditions, etc. He feeds off of your creativity and is willing to experiment with new sounds and take in your own ideas. Shawn is the first person I think of when it comes to music and recording. His talent as a musician/performer has given him an ear for recording that only benefits the overall experience.

    I had an excellent experience recording a cover and music video with Shawn. He refused to stop working until the final product was as good as it could be, and he demonstrated great skill and understanding of recording software and techniques, answering any questions I had about the process. Shawn is a very talented musician, and very good at what he does.
